It may be the slowest time of year for new video games, but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing interesting coming out. Mario Tennis Aces holds the most exciting potential out of anything this week, but there are a few possible gems in-between the days.

A physical edition of SteamWorld Dig 2 drops on PS4 and Switch this Tuesday, and somehow surpassed its predecessor in terms of quality (and quantity of) review scores. Cuisine Royale takes the recently successful Battle Royale mode, integrating protective kitchenware to add to the absurdity of it all. I don’t know if it’s any good, but damn that concept is just weird enough to tease my heart. Carly and the Reaperman: Escape from the Underworld looks like an interesting multiplayer meshing of virtual reality and couch co-op if you have the right set-up.

Most of the rest of this week’s releases take the form of updates to previously release games. BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle released last month, paving the way for some additional characters coming this week. Rocket League gets a Jurassic World-themed bundle of cars, and…well, that’s about it.

Enjoy the calm of the anecdotal storm while you can — in a few months, we’ll all be smothered in too many good games once again. Breathe. Relax. Play.

As always, everything is for PC unless stated otherwise, and the bold titles are the games that have piqued my interest.

Zach’s eternal preoccupation with video games became cemented at an early age. His first memorable journey away from reality began with a text-based Football game on a dirty Apple II; he’s chased fantasy ever since. Having took English classes as electives in college, Zach decided to pull the trigger on a merger between the two obsessions.
